I probably only noticed him because I knew who all the actors were in the main roles.

I liked that actor in other films such as 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' too.
They were called Kromaggs. I liked the Kromagg concept in that one episode when we were first introduced to them, but it was a big mistake to devote the entire season 4 to them. It definitely put the final nail into the Sliders coffin.

I stopped watching halfway through the episode where Quinn was merged. That was the final straw for me.
I really missed the Professor aswell :(

To me the merging of Quinn was not quite the last nail in the coffin... more like dancing on the grave:D

LOL, good point :D

Maybe we should start a list of all the great things Professor Arturo has done in his travels (to stay on topic). Like the penicillin thing and presidential elections.

I have to say that I didn't realise Gimli (in LOTR) was John Rhys-Davies either. He was only about 5ft tall, had a beard and other make-up -- at least that's my excuse.

It was only after I'd seen the film and I found out he was a star -- someone said a 'Sliders' movie would be more likely because of the increased star-profile he would now have -- I thought *he starred in it??* and worked it out.

You know something that's really funny? I've missed that episode EVERY SINGLE time it's aired. I caught the last 10 minutes of it once and I never did get how the professor and Jack the ripper ended up connected. Even if I read about it in the episode guides it's still not the same as having seen it. I didn't see "The Lottery" episode with Wade until a repeat was shown in the 3rd or 4th season.

I vaguely remember the Jack the Ripper episode, but I remember it being cool :cool:. The Professor was Sherlock Holmes, I think, or at least a Sherlock Holmes-type character. So, he did most of the work in solving the Ripper's crime. And as a whole, the episode had a cool tone to it while still staying true to the characters and the series :D. Though it kind of sucked--as I recall--that Wade was more of a damsel-in-distress here than in other episodes.
